Robert Michael Brown, age 67, of Three Oaks, passed away Thursday, January 30, 2020.

He was born August 27, 1952 the youngest of six children of John and Eunice Brown. He married Teri Rae Edgecomb January 3, 1986 in Bridgman, Michigan.

Bob was a life-long resident of Three Oaks, was an avid golfer, and spent much of his retirement traveling around the U.S. researching his family’s history. Music was Bob’s passion in life. He played the piano and sang in his church’s choir. He was also a member of the Southshore Concert Band in Benton Harbor, Michigan, since its start in 1992. He played both the trumpet and the euphonium. Bob was a draftsman and CAD designer for Weldun/Whirlpool for over thirty years. He also drove bus for River Valley Schools. To say he was a life-long fan of the Chicago White Sox is an understatement.

Bob will be greatly missed by family and friends. He leaves his wife of thirty-four years, Teri Brown of Three Oaks; his only child, Katie (Justin Berry) Schmidt of Three Oaks, Michigan; two stepchildren, Erin Salisbury of Loveland, Colorado, Jason Salisbury of Baroda, Michigan; five grandchildren, Lexi (Beck) Williamson, Matthew Schmidt, Austin Salisbury, Emily Berry, Freya Madson; two sisters, Lois Hansen of Chelsea, Michigan, Catherine (David) Harrison of Chattanooga, Tennessee; two brothers, Richard (Penny) Brown of Waterford, Michigan, Roy (Joan) Brown of Three Oaks, Michigan; one sister in law, Maryellen Brown of Fennimore, Wisconsin; his mother in law, Janet Edgecomb of Three Oaks; and a host of nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and one brother, John Brown.

Family and friends will gather Tuesday, February 4, 2020 from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. in Pobocik Chapel Wagner Family Funerals, 106 Ash Street East, Three Oaks. Funeral services will be held Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home. Mr. Brown will be laid to rest in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Three Oaks.

Teri and family, I was so sorry to learn the news from the newspaper and wish I had known in time to extend condolences personally and attend Bob's services. I have many fond memories of you all, and of Bob always as kind and caring. Did not know about his musical gifts, but am not surprised. Be well and take care!

Katie, so sorry for the loss of your Dad. We were in Southshore 27 years together and I really enjoyed sitting in front of him this past year. I always enjoyed seeing the two of you with a shared love, watching you walk out and drive home together. Be glad of that time you had with him, I know this will be a difficult time for you. May you find peace and comfort in the coming days. Darla Crawford, bassoon

Warren & I knew Bob through Southshore Concert Band. Bob was very helpful when I was trying to create the Lest We Forget PowerPoint about World War I. He will be greatly missed. Condolences to his family.

Oh, Bob. Without you, band won't be the same. Without you, the family won't be complete. You have always been an incredibly nice guy, and God knows how sad we are to lose you. You are loved, and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace my friend.
